Composer Jonathan Dove came from a family of architects and his music has continued to be associated with spectacular and controversial buildings: he composed music for the opening ceremonies of the Millennium Dome in 2000. He is one of Britain’s foremost and most versatile young composers, having written choral music, instrumental work, and more than a dozen operas including Flight (1998) for Glyndebourne Touring Opera, set in an airport departure lounge, and When She Died (2002), his opera on the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, broadcast on Channel 4 to an audience of nearly a million.
